Due to their tough, lead-filled exteriors making them better suited to desert habitats than most other species of flora, it was only a matter of time before some Greater Pisstowers tried to settle the entirely of the Dingus Desert. To do so effectively, they developed several different adaptations to thrive in such an arid landscape and became the Pissctus. The most noticable difference is their extremely short and wide stems, which helps retain more water than a tall towering tree-like flora. To aid in this, the amount of lead within the Pissctus's tissues are extremely high to the point where the thorns become almost nothing but lead. Speaking of which, the thorn have become even more massive than their ancestors, since their smaller size means more herbivores could potentially try to feed upon them. The Pissctus also still takes in ambient levels of spite for energy and incorporates the spite within their thorny tissues to further strengthen their impressive defenses. This species also has a massive root system to get as much moisture and nutrients as possible from the very desert they grow in. Much like their ancestor, the Pissctus does not have the entire individual become a pissballoon and die, instead producing a reproductive pissballoon that detaches from the Pissctus when there are high amounts of rain. Once it splits off, the pissballoon will float around the desert pissing out spores in periodic bursts until it eventually runs out of spores and then dies. By not releasing all of their spores at once and instead releasing them in multiple bursts, it increases the amount of distance it can cover and thus boosts the Pissctus's chances that at least some of its offspring will survive long enough to become pissbabies. Meanwhile, the Pissctus will regrow the pissballoon over the course of a year or two. Due to their extreme adaptations, the Pissctus positively thrives in the Dingus Desert, often forming large grooves that dot the landscape since an individual will also produce new Pissctus through offshoots of their root systems.
